WALLACE-HOLMES-POMEROY GENE. REPORT
Posted by: Kathryn Lang (ID *****6719) Date: February 20, 2011 at 14:53:52
  of 11740

This is a work in progress, open to correction. I wanted to share what I could even though there are probably errors. Some of the data is rock-solid, some is not. So mine for your gold and good luck
Best, Kate

P.S. I would mention that something that confused me for awhile was that there were two George Pomeroy Wallaces ~father and son, who married two Cynthias. George Pomeroy Wallce, 1st, m. Cynthia (SISTER of Phineas Holmes) [my Holmes ancestor] and Georges son by the same name who m. the DAUGHER of Phineas Holmes and Rachel. This Cynthia was b. 27 Feb 1816 in Bedford Co., TN and is buried near Pope Valley, Napa Co., CA. Buried in St. Helena, I think She was the sister of (Major) John Milton Holmes. References for him ~ Civil War (p.282 "Benton Co. Pioneer")& Wise Co., TX (History of Wise Co., TX -Cliff D. Cates, 1907) That is where John Milton Holmes died. So there was a large interaction between the Holmes and Wallace families.

Notes for GEORGE POMEROY WALLACE, IST:
Regarding George Pomeroy Wallace, 1st., who m. Cynthia Holmes, b. 16 July, 1781. She was the sister of our Phineas Holmes.       

Became Justice of the Peace in Benton Co., Arkansas in 1837. Cynthia's parents lived near King's Mountain, South Carolina- where the Battle of King's Mountain was fought and where a number of her relatives took part. The Battle was between the British and Americans- fought Oct 07, 1780.

There is a record in Al, Ga, or SC of a G.P. Wallace marrying in the span of 1641 to 1944. -
J.P. in Benton Co., Ark. in 1837. Look in census for record. The "First" GPW may have had a brother named James H. Wallace- this is the man who bought the slaves from Phinias and Rachel- which sale a G.P.W. attested to. A condition of the sale was that .."The said Wallace is to go on his own expense to Carroll County, Tennessee for three of the negroes, Lucinda, Guilford and Claressa."

Arkansas Land Records
There are several Wallaces that had transactions in Arkansas in the mid to late 1800's. However there are only two I see from George "P." Wallace. (Pomeroy). Both were cash sale entries. He purchased 150 acres on May 1, 1845 in Fayetteville, and again, 40 acres in Fayetteville on Sep 1, 1848.

Notes for CYNTHIA (SISTER OF PHINEAS) HOLMES:
"Her parents lived near King's Mountain, South Carolina, where the battle of Kings Mountain was fought and where a number of her relatives took part. Battle was between British and Americans fought on October 7, 1780."

King's Mountain is in Cleveland Co., NC. Library in King's Mountain (704) 739 2371. I talked to a librarian named Allison, she says its more of a hill, than a mountain. The town is in Nc. But the battle was fought in South Carolina in the area between York and Cherokee counties. Kings Mountain is a National Military Park. It is in Antioc, SC. Phone (803) 936 7921. Called there Sept 28, 1995 and talked to Mr. Chris Revels. Need to write him a letter- address- Kings Mountain Military Park. P.O. Box 40, Kings Mountain, NC.

July 25, 1996- Talked to a very patient and helpful Barbara- a secretary there.
She said an older gentleman named Dr. Bobbie Moss has published a book with some lists of people who fought there.

Notes for JAMES HOLMES:
NOTES on James Holmes, b. 1776, d. 1853, a native of South Carolina.

       "The Holmes family came to this country with General Oglethorpe, and settled in the colony formed by him in South Carolina. Two brothers came with him [James] from Ireland. William and John Holmes, leaving one brother behind, who lived and died unmarried in the Emerald Isle, leaving a considerable fortune. the heirship being not yet proved up, the estate remains in charge of the government. The Holmes boys followed an agricultural life in South Carolina, and their descendants have since then followed the same occupation. The grandfather of our subject was in the war for independence and served with distinction.
        He made the gun with which he fought, and it was unsurpassed by any gun in the company to which he belonged. This important relic is now in the possession of Mr. (William) Holmes. [This man is the son of the Wm. Holmes b: April 6, 1824, and grandson of James Holmes b: Ireland] His grandfather's death occurred in South Carolina.[Brøderbund WFT Vol. 2, Ed. 1, Tree #3071, Date of Import: 18 May 1997]

James Holmes was an early settler in Alabama, coming when the Indians swarmed almost at will through the state. He moved to Mississippi in 1840 and settled in Choctaw County. There were few people in the country at that time and farming was done under great danger and many difficulties.

Notes for GEORGE POMEROY WALLACE:

George P. Wallace, at whose house the county was organized, settled one mile and a half east of Bentonville. He was a large and powerful man, being nearly seven feet in height, and had several sons who were his equal in stature. He subsequently sold his first improvement and moved to another place in the county, a few miles further north. It is said that when he wanted to raise a house he did not invite his neighbors to assist, for he and his stalwart sons were always equal to the task.



Regarding George Pomeroy Wallace, II, (b. 1813 in Tenn.) who married his cousin, Cynthia Holmes, she was born 27 Feb. 1815. She was the DAUGHTER of Phineas Holmes. The SISTER of Phineas Holmes - also named Cynthia Holmes, b. 1781 married George Pomeroy Wallace, the 1st.
GPW,the Ist was supposed to have something to do with Oglethorpe, Georgia. He was born near there in 1774.

Pope Valley, near St. Helena, Ca., last place of residence. Died at 81 years of age. He was born in 1813 and his wife Cynthia Holmes in 1815. I believe he was the SON of George Pomeroy Wallace, Sr., (?1st) who did business with Phinias Holmes in 1837 in the County of Benton, State of Arkansas on Jan. 26, 1837. G.P.W., Sr., was a Justice of the Peace in Benton Co. and "Attested" to a sale of slaves on that date'
--------
I don't know where these Wallaces belong that were in the graveyard- the relationship to the rest of the family. Volney A. Wallace, cremains interred 6 Nov., 1913. Died at 28 years 4 days. He was born in 1885. ?

Hattie N. Wallace, date of internment was 31 Jan. 1887. She was single, 25, and a native of Calif. Cause of death consumption. Born in 1862 and last lived in Los Angeles before she died. ?

G.P. Wallace family plot is in St. Helena on 2461 Spring Street.
A curious thing is that on the back side of the family monument is carved, Elizabeth Barnett, Born March 23, 1849, d. Nov., 18, 1883. She died at 34 years of age.

I don't know where this fits in; George W. Wallace m. Mary E. (J.) Fletcher, June 24, 1875. Prob. Illinois.

Notes for CYNTHIA HOLMES:
Cynthia Holmes, b. Feb. 27, 1815, was the daughter of Phineas Holmes.
She is buried in the G.P. Wallace family plot at 2461 Spring Street in St. Helena, Ca. -zip-94574. The phone #is (707) 963-3544. Paula Soekland is the Office Manager- of the Saint Helena Cemetery Association. Her mother's name-who works there also- is Ruby. Barbara Rosasco and I had a lovely drive and time over there today. [January 2, 1996]

The cemetery lists her as being born in Arkansas. Residence at time of her death was Pope Valley, CA.
